Hakuna Matata resort is a 144 acre private property in Booral NSW (2.5 hrs north of Sydney) and has places available for you to stay on weekends or during the week. There are numerous sites on the property to set up tents, either in a group or in a more secluded area where you will feel like you are alone in the bush. Some sites are grassed, some are sloped, and some are more ‘earthy'.
Rafiki has 4 prepared tents. 3 of these are for 2 persons and the larger tent can cater for 2-4 persons. Each tent has either a stretcher bed or mat, sleeping bag and pillow for each person.
The area has a firepit, gas BBQ, and toilet tent, and is secluded from other areas of the property. There is a cold shower about 200 metres from Rafiki that can be used by guests.
The cost is $70 per person per night.
Rafiki can generally be accessed with a 2wd vehicle unless the entrance drive is muddy after torrential rain.
The safari tent area (Mufasa) is generally booked privately, so please be respectful of guests there.
Swimming and water activities can occur in the dam at the bottom of the property, but swimming after dark is not allowed, and we ask that no swimming occurs before 9am.
Other things to noteAlcohol and smoking is permitted but please take your rubbish with you, including cigarette butts and bottle tops. Also, please do not throw glass / cans into fires. Also, please ensure you pick up any accidentally broken glass. We expect that groups take all their rubbish home with them so please bring bin bags. Stroud landfill (10 kms away) is open on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays.
For group bookings, we collect a $300 cash bond on arrival from the guest who made the booking and this is returned if there is no damage or rubbish remaining at checkout.
We know that partying means alcohol for many people. We ask that you are just respectful of others and the property. We have a swimming dam and we ask that people do not drink at this area and also do not go in the water while intoxicated.
Although you are in the bush and neighbours are a long way away, we request that noise is kept to a reasonable level. You can party for sure!! But bass in particular travels in the valleys and neighbours can get annoyed. We ask that you respect us if we ask you to either turn down the bass or the noise overall. Generally, it is expected that music will be turned down at 1am.
Also, we ask you to respect that this is our home, particularly at the shed house along the driveway. We ask that you do not congregate at our house and if you need to ask us something, send us a message or phone us.
